I booked a table for 10 in the Brasserie for a 21st birthday Sunday lunch for our lactose intolerant daughter. Our party had two almost 90 years olds and three children under 8. The staff were amazing and the pastry chef also produced an amazing dairy free dessert for our daughter. Such attention to detail from the moment we walked...

Just stayed at Sopwell for an overnight break with my husband. As usual we had a fabulous time, (we have visited many times before) enjoying the spa, food, excellent massage, comfy rooms and excellent service. A special thank you to Tony, the master butler who could not have done enough for us, super guy who gives personalised service to every...

Had a lovely stay at Sopwell House. Stayed in an executive room that had a massive bed - one of the most comfy I've slept in; Second only to the Hilton Hawaiian Village 😎 Staff were very friendly and helpful. The warmth and smell of the log fire as we walked in on a vey cold January afternoon was very...

This was our 4th time back to Sopwell House but the first time we had booked to eat in the restaurant. The food was very good but it took an awful long time to reach us. Our table was booked for 8.00 pm we arrived and it was not until after 10.00 pm that our desert actually arrived. Not sure...

My partner took me to Sopwell House last weekend for a birthday treat. We had a beautiful massage and stay however, the experience has been ruined because we have been over charged by £400 without us knowing. We have rang the reception twice to let them know of this issue, which they have responded saying that it was an accident...

I visited Sopwell house for the 4th time in Dec 2016. My friends and I look forward to our stay and it has become a bit of a ritual - I love the Xmas decorations! The facilities are brilliant, I particularly love the pool which is always at the perfect temperature. The massage was amazing and I literally fell asleep,...

The first time I visited Sopwell House was with my husband on the 9th December 2016 to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. I mentioned it in passing when I booked it and to our surprise, we were upgraded to the Mews. As I had originally booked for one night I felt it would be only fitting if I stayed another night...

I went here for my birthday 'two's company' spa day. The staff were so friendly and made that extra effort for my birthday. The facilities were clean and relaxing. I had a Clarins massage and facial by Emilia and Candice. Such lovely girls who are amazing at their jobs. They were both so relaxing and just what I wanted from...

I recently booked a spa day for my Mum's birthday and the package included 3 treatments and a 3 course lunch. On arrival the lady at reception was very welcoming and informative and showed us to the changing rooms which were very clean and tidy. Our first treatment was the Clarins Triactive Facial which was lovely, followed by the Clarins...

My executive room was clean and tidy. I was surprised by the lack of information about the hotel facilities in the room. There was no hint of the treatments offered by the spa, no mention of checking out time etc. The room also lacked a minibar, and although I was told that there was a coffee pod machine in the...
